"Impact of different methods of victim impact statement delivery at captial trials: Emotionality of statements and its impact on sentencing decisions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society / 4th International Congress of Psychology and Law, Hyatt Regency Miami, Miami, FL, Mar 02, 2011 <Not Available>. 2019-11-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p482553_index.html>

Abstract: We examined emotionality of three Victim Impact Statements (VIS) methods used during capital trials: 1) family/friend reads a prepared statement (Free Narrative), 2) family/friends provide unprepared answers to questions posed by the prosecuting attorney (Question-answer), and 3) family/friend reads a prepared statement before the judge in absence of the jury (Post-sentencing).
We found free-narrative significantly more emotional than the question-answer method when presented to a jury. VIS presented to a jury yielded a greater number of death sentences when compared to VIS presented to the judge alone. VIS with the question-answer yielded more death sentences than the free-narrative method.

Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: Victim impact statements (VIS), though commonly used in capital sentencing, are criticized as tending to influence capital jurors’ decisions by evoking strong, biasing, emotional responses. Although close to two decades of empirical work exists, we present here the first meta-analysis of the VIS literature. Consistent with narrative reviews, we find a small but robust effect such that VIS increases the likelihood of death sentences. The effect is smaller, however, for death-qualified samples. Few effects of moderator variables appeared, suggesting (again consistent with previous reviews) that more research is needed to identify exactly how VIS influences decisions. Policy implications are discussed.

Abstract: Many college students engage in or have been exposed to drug use during their academic careers. Environmental factors should be considered when exploring what could be influencing the high rates of drug use on college campuses. This current study explores two environmental influences using ArcGIS software. Previous literature and research has indicated that accessibility to bars, clubs, and drug treatment centers influence college student drug use. Through the use of ArcGis, this study will explore whether easy accessibility of bars and clubs contribute to higher drug rates on college campuses, as well as whether easy accessibility of drug treatment centers contributes to lower drug rates on college campuses.

Abstract: The ultimate goal of education is to teach students to be critical thinkers who can apply what they learn to the world around them. Many institutions have implemented capstone courses to help achieve this goal. Capstone courses represent the culmination of knowledge in a student’s degree, and should be the pinnacle marker in their education. How do we know students, now alumni have adopted the knowledge from their capstone course into their everyday life? How do we know that students are actually learning? Our mixed methods research which included coding student reflections and a self-administered survey of 10-years of sociology capstone alumni revealed that not all capstone courses are producing equal long-term learning outcomes. Our research found that engaging students in public and applied sociology prepared them for their careers, engaged them in high-impact practices, and demonstrated long-term learning outcomes for alumni. Based on our findings, we have created a new high impact practices framework that should influence the design and evaluation of capstone courses.
